    Rodrick Mtui

    Lead Tanzanian Guide

    Rodrick is from the Chagga tribe and was born in Marangu Village on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro, where he grew up in a family of 8 children. He is part of the prominent Mtuy clan, many of whom have worked on the mountain in the last 30 years.

    Rodrick has been working as a guide for over 15 years, with over 150 ascents of the mountain. He has worked with Alpine groups for over 10 years and is currently the lead Tanzanian guide for all Alpine Ascents trips alongside the Western guide. He is known for his excellent leadership skills, unending patience, and a great smile.

    Rodrick lives in Arusha with his wife Aggie, and his young son Genius. The family is currently expecting another child in 2018! They hope to move to a new location in Maji A Chai (water of tea) where they are working on building a new home- closer to Kilimanjaro.

    A phenomenal experience that I will always remember. An expedition that was effectively organized and garnered the resources that allowed an amateur trekker’s wish to climb Kili to be fleshed into reality.
